The twisted photograph from last week’s “Where in the World…” proved to be one of the easier ones. Most people identified the golden dome shape as the Dome of the Rock and the city therefore as Jerusalem. One suggestion was Samarkand; it’s quite easy to see how the Islamic architecture of the Dome could be mistaken for the city on the Silk Road when the photograph is distorted. The scene, viewed from the Mount of Olives, is reproduced in its undistorted format below.
Three people correctly identified the city and left their answers. Tim (@timofnewbury) and Atul (@pixodentist), both regulars on this page were joined by Redzuan (@furiouslypanda) from Singapore. Congratulations to all three of you and thanks to everyone for taking part.
This week’s distorted photograph will probably present something of a challenge as there is no iconic structure to give a clue. However the whole scene is somewhat iconic and a typical view of this particular city.
